  STS51B-038-0089 Central Cascades and Newberry Crater, Oregon, U.S.A. May 1985
This northeast-looking, low-oblique photograph includes the central Oregon Cascade Range from the Three Sisters and Mount Bachelor Volcanoes near the top left to Diamond Peak Volcano and Crescent Lake near the bottom center. Newberry Crater National Park, one of the newest parks in the United States, is visible at the upper right of the photograph. Newberry, having lost its summit to a gigantic explosion nearly 7000 years ago, is much like Crater Lake to the southwest (not visible in this image). Hot springs in the two ice-covered lakes inside Newberry's caldera are the only surface signs of continuing volcanic activity. Geothermal exploration has revealed that temperatures exceed 500 degrees F only 3000 feet (915 meters) beneath the floor of the caldera; these are the highest temperatures recorded at a dormant Cascade Range volcano. Easily discernible are bright white (frozen) Waldo Lake near the left center of the photograph and numerous dark blue lakes.
